A nice restaurant to stop at, if you’re traveling I-90. Home style food with large portions. The omelette was made with fresh eggs and bacon. The home fries were fresh, not frozen. Staff is friendly. Can’t go wrong with low prices.

We stopped in Blue Earth to see the Jolly Green Giant Statue, and decided we would also eat lunch. We like family type restaurants, and this was a good one! The service was good and the meal was hot and delicious.

My wife and I just stopped for gas, and decided to eat there because we like mom and pop restaurants! We both had a good lunch, and visited the Jolly Green Giant statue while we were there!

Stayed nearby on a motorcycle trip and gave it a try. The service was pleasant and the food hot and tasty. I had the buffalo chicken sandwich and enjoyed it with sweet tea and a salad; topped with their homemade ranch dressing.

I love the French toast platter at this restaurant. It is a never fail breakfast. You also might like to have any of the make your own omelets as well. If you are going for lunch, you could choose any of the burgers or salads.

Food was pretty good but a bit pricey for the portion size. Waitress was very friendly and did well at making sure our drinks stayed full.

Theresa When are you going to quit lying on your site just to make yourself look so good especially when we both know you told me to leave and pull my wife’s card rack out and she’s informed everyone know what happened and she’s happy not to be near your establishment cause of your boyfriend calling my wife a N-word loving woman at the same time at Kwik Trip I was inside my truck and he threatened to kick my butt so I got out and then an employee came out and asked me if they needed to call the police and I said not to bother cause I would turn him in for terroristic threat. The police already knew about him!! When he stops working at the restaurant And holds down a real job with a real boss that’s when I will leave y’all alone!!! He’s nothing but a bully and someone will take him to the woodshed and bullying will stop! Truth eventually if it hasn’t already will win. You have and April has been brainwashed by yourself and your waitress’s won’t say anything but I know a few things that if your boyfriend ever says anything to me I will tell the truth but this time two Newspapers will know and it’s up to them if they wish to print letters to the editor!! You think that I won’t I don’t lie!!
